This is a special week over at www.MojoMonday.blogspot.com. This is a milestone Challenge #200 and to celebrate, they have increased the number of prizes!!! If you have never played here, now is a good time to start.
I love embossing and coloring on vellum. I used chalk to color the cherry blossoms. Please remember to wear a mask when working with chalks. The lavendar pearls are from www.want2scrap.com. They make their own bling and it is not as costly as some other brands.
I have a friend who makes wonderful cards but she has not joined any of the social communities and is afraid to submit her work…she doesn’t think its “good enough”. I started this blog to encourage novice cardmarkeers, like me, to get out there and share your cards and learn from others.
A Note To My Novice Friends!
If there are any “lurkers” out there reading my blog, please start submitting your work! I am still in shock because I was recently asked to be a guest designer on my favorite challenge site…I still can’t believe it. I thank my daughter everyday for encouraging me to start joining these communities and posting my work.
I think we all have that little competitive spirit in us that says” Oh, it would be so nice if I could win one of those challenges”, and in all likelyhood one of these days we will. But right now we are “novices” and every card is a lesson. Every card improves your skills. Right now, I just focus on trying to complete all the challenges. Every challenge is an opportunity!!! Be well, Chana!
